Show Notes by Production Assistant - Anna Nygren



  • Ask for references!
  • Build your resume through extra certifications and get more experience


Life Coach vs. Business Coach

  • Life coaching is more direct and more about accountability than business coaching
  • The key to success once you’ve hired a coach, is results
    • Results that you’ve defined with your coach, in detail
  • The coach needs to really get into the hearts of his/her clients
    • Keep an open line of communication to allow for revisions
  • Being an entrepreneur = working overtime
  • One of the key mistakes is not understanding your numbers - what expansion looks like/costs, etc.
  • Another big mistake is not networking enough
  • No one does this -- i.e. entrepreneur, business, career etc. -- alone
  • Consistency is in the top three factors that get you to your goals


Closing Lines

  • Having a coach is not for everyone
    • Control freaks? Nope.
    • You need a desire to learn and improve
  • Understand your cash flow
  • Network more!

Ep. 93: Use your business plan to raise funds and find investors, Tallat Mahmood can show you how.

Tallat Mahmood's work has been featured in Forbes, Entrepreneur, Bplans, TechCrunch, and he is a mentor for MassChallenge, one of the world's largest business accelerators. Find out more about him on The Nice Guys today.

A business plan does not have to be an onerous and lengthy piece of work. Also, it is not an irrelevant exercise and can help your business immensely IF executed correctly. Many entrepreneurs struggle with the same things with an business plan; how to make it relevant, how not to spend months and months on it, how to use it in their business, how to use it for funding, how to structure it properly. Tallat has a step by step system to validating, structuring and pitching your business plan (either to your team or banks and investors) in order for you to be able to manage your business better. Here's more about Tallat:

- He started out as an Aerospace Engineer.     

- He has advised companies for 12 years as a corporate financier and as an investor.     

- His advisory business, SkyPanther Capital has advised numerous companies globally on how to fund, grow, and exit their businesses.     

Here's what we learned today about writing great business plans:     

- It should address 2 questions- 1) What is the opportunity and 2)

How are you mitigating against the risks.     

- It should be based on what's happening in your business right now.     

- Base your plan on already having the money you are looking for.  

- Fundraising is a different skill set from building a business. Tallat's flagship online course The Smart Business Plan Academy can help your business build strong business plans in quick time to help them with internal strategy or fundraising.    

- Download "7 Proven steps to being fundable in 30 days" free tips to get you started at

- His business advisory website SkyPanther Capital, at www.skypanthercapital.comwhere I personally advise businesses on all matters relating to business growth, fundraising, and exits.
